Mark: That works out really well. If my mis adjusted eye is wrong on mine and it is 54 inches between the rails that will work out great. A tank 52"x22"x4" would hold 19.8 gallons. If I let it hang 1 inch below the pan it would be 24.75 gallons. That's a reasonable gray water tank.

Yeah with that width baffles would be a must. 25 gallons would be 200lb roughly plus the weight of the tank. Hmmm If I can get the tank right behind the axle I think 200lb would not be a big issue if on the rare occasion I had to drive a little before I found a place to dump. That will actually put it right in line with the rear spring hangers (no duraflex on ours. it has leaf springs). That would alow me to put a second dump right behind a tire where it's fairly well protected.

As luck would have it I can access a drain right in my own yard LOL . Thanks to new building codes when my neighbor hooked to city sewer they now have to put a clean out at the connection. That so happend to end up in my yard. I cut the top off 4 inches below grade because it looked like hell. I know exactly where it is LOL.

Toilette bizarro

Yeah, I agree the slosshing probaby won't be a problem if located near the centerline and down low.
When our sewer was put in, they dug a trench through my neighbors yard, then a quick right angle and short run to my house. We don't have clean-outs. In Minnesota the sewers need to run at least 6ft underground or they freeze up.

Mark - nice looking '59 Trade Wind. Where was yours made? I've found three '59 Trade Wind's, including mine, that the serial numbers are within 18 of each others. What is your serial number? This is getting really interesting.

Toilet bizardo

S/N 249082. Ordered the day after Christmas, 1958, shipped April Fools Day, 1959. Ohio plant. Price was $4814, less $1814 trade-in (1952 Silver Streak Clipper Delux), net $3000.
My wife's uncle bought this new, and took her to Yellowstone and Banf when she was a child.

Some places are better than others

All you-all who are writing about putting in a gray-water tank:

I looked at a 68 Overlander this week at South Jersey RV, a place that does repair and restoration work on Airstreams. They put a gray-water tank underneath, inside a metal box-looking contraption, and the whole thing was behind the axles and about 8 inches off the ground!

My uneducated take was that a speed bump would catch this thing, and there are LOTS of speed bumps in campgrounds!

Thanks Penguin. Sometimes we forget where the hazards are.

If it's close to the axle that's not really as bad as it sounds. The problem is out towards the bumper.

To put it into perspective my last DD that I drove for 4 years sat no more the 6 inches off the ground at the front spoiler and rocker pannels and I never dragged it on a speed bump. Got the front lip on a few parking ties and curbs though.
